"As you can see, its best fuel economy is definitely at a lower cruising speed than 65-70."

Yes, i agree. The sweet spot is 65 mph. It is almost as if the torque band and gearing were optimized for the 2006 national speed limit of 65. Not much benefit by going slower than than that imho.

As we approached indianapolis at 65mph I was getting 29.2 on the Dash Command app until the temperature creeped up into the 90's then it plummeted quickly into the 27-28 range.
